Sunday at the 2012 NFL Combine is a day for the quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs to participate in strength and speed skills drills. Well, to the surprise of no one, much sought after Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III tore up the 40-yard dash. Via Rich Campbell of the Washington Times:
RG3 ran an unofficial 4.38-second 40-yard dash. He's not as shifty as Cam, but his straight-line speed is elite. Stock continues to rise.— Rich Campbell (@Rich_Campbell) February 26, 2012
That sound you hear is Washington Redskins fans collectively salivating.
[Update: Video has emerged of the speed demon quarterback]
